Mozzarella Crust Pizza
Consider your pizza cravings gone, with this fat-centric pizza where the mozzarella crisps on the bottom and can be cut (and held) like a real pizza. Plus, you’ll still get all that classic pizza flavor you crave.
2 cups shredded organic mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon plus a pinch pizza seasoning, divided
½ cup tomato sauce
Grated organic Parmesan cheese
TipsYou can use this basic recipe to make any kind of pizza you like. I love to add sausage and banana peppers and place it under the broiler for a few extra minutes, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn.
Directions Preparing:5 minCooking:15 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Step 2Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper (don’t use aluminum foil). Arrange the mozzarella on the sheet in an even layer to form a large rectangle with no holes. Sprinkle the garlic powder and a pinch of pizza seasoning over the cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and browned all around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes.
Step 3Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set aside to cool for 3 minutes.
Step 4Spread the tomato sauce over the top of the crust, and then sprinkle it with the Parmesan cheese and the remaining 1 teaspoon of pizza seasoning. Return the pizza to the oven for about 1 minute. Slice and serve hot.
